Love-Lock Bridge ........


University Footbridge   ~
 
Our University footbridge has become somewhat of a love-lock bridge
with hundreds of little padlocks engraved with the sweetest sayings
like "locked together forever"
 
 
 
Sweethearts lock their token to the railings
take their pic in front of the padlock and then
toss the key into the river as a symbol of their undying love.
Aint that sweet!!

I wonder if 'Daniel and Debi' are still locked together.

Dianne said...

Hamilton: yes! I asked myself the same question but I guess it's always fun while it lasts.

Do you ever see scuba divers down below trying to find a key they tossed in there before breaking up?

They are really sweet, a romantic idea and feeling of love in this post!
Love your first picture, so beautifully captured and framed!

My whimsical side says "How romantic". My cynical side suspects "it's a plot by the lock manufacturers". Fortunately whimsy won! Ciao J.

This idea seems to be steadily moving throughout bridges in Europe. It must be a wonderful moment in their lives.

I'm glad there was nothing like this when I was at Uni; I'd have bought quite a few such locks during the time I was there!

...isn't it amazing how 'things' just take off like that

Saw that for the first time on Brooklyn Bridge and had no idea what it was….seems to become a global occurrence.
